Wiltshire and Salisbury Plain – day 1
We had been planning this three-day child-free off-road tour of the Lake District for months, but as the time approached it became clear that the weather was not going to be good enough as we were intending to camp. Forecast was both wet and cold – not a good combination!
Rather than taking the soft option and booking a B&B we decided to stay South and go greenlaning around Salisbury then up on the Plain for off-roading.
We arrived at the campsite (***** by the way) about 30 mins of daylight left and had the tent up in about 12 of them, and the bolognese sauce cooking in another 10. Unfortunately the gas ran out before the spaghetti was cooked and we suddenly looked like the bunch of amateurs that we are! Still, I had managed to warm some mulled wine in the process. Not such an amateur after all!
